@kunsthalletbilisi presents @n_kutateladze and his on-site installation Water Mill on Pavlov Street in #tbilisi .
For this project the architect and artist moved an entire village water mill into a small inner-city apartment. The machines were taken over piece by piece from his family village in the Georgian region of Guria and installed in an apartment from the Soviet era in today's Kazbegi Avenue, but were then called Pavlov Street (see title of the work). It combines Georgia's recent Soviet past and his own.
@pataragallery is an artist-run space in an ordinary underpass shop. We will write more about the localization of the gallery in our reader, which we will publish at the beginning of next year. #gallery#passages#underground#tbilisi
The traditional coffee house culture of Vienna is an integral part of @atlasobscura's recently published trip to the capital.

The photo was taken in the current exhibition True Stories A Show Related to an Era - The Eighties at Gallery Max Hetzler Berlin and shows the work Café Alt Wien by Martin Kippenberger. The Viennese coffee house was founded in 1936 by Leopold Hawelka and his wife Josefine. #atlasobscura
We would like to share a recommendation for a conference with you: Arrival Cities: Migrating Artists and New Metropolitan Topographies
1st International Conference of the ERC Research Project
Relocating Modernism: Global Metropolises, Modern Art and Exile (METROMOD)
Focusing on the intersections of exile, artistic practice and urban space, this international conference brings together researchers committed to revising the historiography of ‘modern’ art. Part of the ERC research project Relocating Modernism: Global Metropolises, Modern Art and Exile (METROMOD), it addresses metropolitan areas that were settled by migrant artists in the first half of the 20th century. These so-called “arrival cities” (Doug Saunders, 2011), were hubs of artistic activities and transcultural contact zones where ideas circulated, collaborations emerged and concepts developed. Taking cities as a starting point, this conference explores how urban topographies and artistic landscapes were modified by exiled artists re-establishing their practices in metropolises across the world. It addresses questions such as: How did the migration of artists to different urban spaces impact their work and the historiography of art? How did the urban environments in which the artists moved and worked affect professional negotiations as well as cultural and linguistic exchange?
Convened by METROMOD Team/Institut für Kunstgeschichte, LMU Munich: Burcu Dogramaci, Mareike Hetschold, Laura Karp Lugo, Rachel Lee, Helene Roth.
Administration and Assistance: Christina Lagao, Maya-Sophie Lutz.
